    I'm pretty sure you can get them, they're like $600 front or rear.

    too god not to share...

    from the website in regards to asthetic design:

    "The aim was a brave outward appearance, which bears resembles to the Transformers while providing the robust image of Terminator and functionality of the Batmobile. We strived to produce a product which no manufacturer was brave enough to transport from the design desk to the city streets. The M55 makes an item of previously unattainable luxury available for purchase: one can now buy the actual production version of a courageous concept design.

    Our vision was a cyborgical design that deepens the feeling when the machine and the rider becomes one once the latter hops in the cockpit. The body of the Beast reflects power and strength with a hint of elegance. It is a stylish, unique vehicle that you won’t find in every corner."

    uhm.... yes, cyborgical... just what i look for in a bike.

    But wait, who is this bike for??

    "Who are M55 bikes for?

    For those, who…

    …want to be part of the elite circle of those who first ride the „green wave” that is getting bigger and bigger.
    I thought riding a regular bike was already green?

    …care about the environment their children will grow up in.
    if you ride a regular bike, you arent using electricity at all, which means zero polution
    …are wise enough to be environmentally conscious but at the same time luxorious quality is at least as important for them.
    There are comercially available electric motorcycles capable of far greater speeds and ranges and they arent mopeds either.
    …not only demand unique performance but also aesthetically mesmerising design.
    oh... its mesmerising allright
    …want to own something trully unique in his/her garage.
    Thought those were called "choppers" and "hot rods" can't you and i buy identical models of this bike?
    …cares about fittness but doesn’t want to swim in sweat after a long ride or a tough climb.
    "...cares about fitness, but not enough to want to break a sweat"

    It is clear that the M55rider is an environmentally conscious person, who wants to keep up with the newest technological developments and is not afraid to try something new, something different. He wants his bike to serve him and not the other way around!"

    Guys and Gals, we're all serving our bikes unless they are electric powered, weigh over 70 lbs, require plugging them in, and use a rear "Fork". we're also not environmentally concious because we arent using electricity to ride our bikes.

    the more i look into this bike, the more i wonder "What the hell were they thinking anyway?"

    My favorite parts of the ad for the M55
    Suspension travel: front: 200 mm, back: 172 mm, for use with only disc brakes
    Components:

    Fork: Fox 36 160 Talas Fit RLC with Kashima coating

    maybe its a a new super shock that stretches.
